Museum: African Art Museum
Location: Level 1 Lobby
This exhibition focuses on the icon--an art form associated with the Ethiopian Orthodox church--and features six icons from the museum's collection that have recently undergone technical analysis and conservation treatment. In addition to the icons, comparative objects including a hand cross, processional cross, and prayer finial stick are on display. This behind-the-scenes glimpse offers new insights from two viewpoints--the curator and conservator--into the creation of the icons and the effort involved in preserving them.
